Priorities of Czech EU presidency discussed at roundtable

Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhánek met with representatives of the various parties represented in the Czech Parliament on Thursday to discuss priorities for the upcoming Czech EU presidency next year.

The Czech Republic will want to focus on transatlantic cooperation and countering hybrid threats, according to a Foreign Ministry press release issued after the meeting. Priority will also be placed on the Indo-Pacific region, which is currently growing in geopolitical importance. The Czech Republic is also interested in organising two summits during its presidency, namely between the EU – US and EU – India.

Mr Kulhánek said that he wants to hold more roundtables with Parliamentary parties in the following months.
